Matthijs de Ligt has sustained an injury and will be out of the squad against Lokomotiv Moscow


The Dutch defender scored a half volley in his previous match to claim all 3 points for Juventus. With his goal, de Ligt became the first foreign player in Juve’s history to score the first goal in a match against Torino.



But the Italian giants will have to leave their record-breaker on the sidelines in the upcoming match. As reported by Football Italia, the former Ajax center back sprained his ankle during his previous match where he heroically scored the winner. As a result, Matthijs de Ligt did not travel to Moscow with his squad.

Juve has brought veteran defender Daniele Rugani and Merih Demiral to replace the Dutchman in the squad. This is the Juventus squad traveling to Moscow for their upcoming Champions League tie:

Juventus squad for Lokomotiv Moscow:

1. Szczesny
2. De Sciglio
5. Pjanic
6. Khedira
7. Ronaldo
8. Ramsey
10. Dybala
11. Douglas Costa
12. Alex Sandro
13. Danilo

24. Rugani
25. Rabiot

The injury was a light one and de Ligt is set to miss only one match. Moreover, he will be available to face Milan in the Seria A at the weekend.
